Who gets what in a Texas divorce?
Generally, anything that is not separate property in a Texas divorce is marital property (although the two can get mixed up). Going back to the examples above, that means that the Corvette and wife’s income are assets earned and used by both spouses after marriage, so those assets are marital property.

Can my wife kick me out of my own house?
A common-law spouse who owns their home can kick their partner out at any time, for any reason (although it’s always recommended you speak with a lawyer before doing so!). Married spouses cannot. Until a divorce is granted or a court orders otherwise, both spouses have a right to live in the matrimonial home.
